something big done. the president has made it clear he wants to do something substantial. >> sean: that was budget director lew talking about the debt negotiations. he says the president wants to do something substantial. we found out how hollow that pledge is. the administration announced if the republicans cut cap and balance pledge were to pass the house and senate, president crybaby would veto this the plan gaining momentum tackles america's fiscal crisis making mandatory spending reductions that would reduce the deficit, cap spending at 18% of the gdp and send to the states a balanced budget amendment to the u.s. constitution. those measures would prevent this president from pursuing his reckless tax and spend agenda, which explains why he's opposed to it. joining me with his take south carolina senator lindsey graham. how are you? >> good, thanks for having me. >> sean: it is simple to me. this is the moment of truth. they election in 2010, the biggest mid term in 70 years. i'll quote president obama, we won, conservatives won. cut, cap and balance, do you support it? >> tot
into a big thing. the president is saying, you must have a deal within 24 to 36 hours. mr. president, what is your deal? will you pro offer a deal. write it up, put it on a couple pieces of paper and offer it. instead he's saying, cave. give me all the taxes i want. and give me as little restraint on spending as i want. and don't ever count on me to offer a plan. >> sean: some good news today. i was not that happy with senator mccon fell's proposal. but, today -- today he came out as a co-sponsor in the senate of cut, cap and balance. my take is, strategically this is a bit of a chess game many you are great at strategy. why not the house republicans pass, cut, cap and balance send it to the senate, let's see was? >> we gotta have movement. mcconnell is a crafty inside operator. his first offer is never his final offer. i was looking at not what he was suggesting specifically, but the direction. the direction of it was to change the dynamic. mr. president, where is your plan? his proposal required the president to offer a plan. second, it acknowledged we needed to get this thing done. it c
intend to have my voice heard. just won't be with a big megaphone. >> sean:7ç do you agree this particular primary is a little different than previous primaries? republicans seem to have historically pick the next person up this year seems to be a battle between a tea party candidate or establishment candidate is that a fair characterization? >> i think that's right. i think the old order is being dismembered. the democratic party is a coalition of communities around special interests. president obama was very effective in mobilizing support in the down fall of the democratic party around his candidacy being the organized principle of that.gr that's what he's going to try again. republicans are slower to move into the 21st century model. but, the old idea that it was someone's turn no longer is valid. >> sean: you have been very critical of president obama on one issue in particular. it came up again today. the fact that the president seems obsessed with braming your brother for all of the problems that exist -- with blaming your brother for all of the problems that exist.
and have the economy of zimbabwe. it is a big problem. i don't know why anyone who isn't an elected republican can't talk seriously about social is security and medicare and medicaid. according to obama's own treasury secretary are going to consume within 10 years, 92 cents of every federal budget dollar. that isn't a system that can last. yet, a majority of americans say don't touch social security. don't touch medicare this is what the democrats are saying. that's why you keep having these -- remember rudd man and the concorde coalition? no elected politician, republican or democrat will talk about reforming social security. >> sean: we always get the tax increases, spending cuts, reagan never came, george her burt walker bush, they never come. the idea they are going to hand it over, it is not going to happen. -- you raised a more fundamental question why they need to stand strong here. that is, philosophically, we've become -- look what happens when they put austerity measures in place in europe. look at what happened to greece. if we don't do it now the pain is going to be grea
't have been surprised in one sense because he made such a big deal about meeting with our enemies in the campaign. you would have thought having been in office for 2 1/2 years he would have been sobered by events and made another decision this is inexplicable. why does the administration go out of its way to give legitimacy and credibility to the muslim brotherhood by announcing formal contacts? what is to be gained? except to advance the muslim brotherhood and make america look weak. it looks like we are the is up can't, please, can we -- we are the is up can't, please can we meet with you. there was nothing to be ginned. why the president did it now and it in such a public fashion is inexplicable. if he wanted contacts, off the stage. why make this an act that gives legitimacy to the muslim brotherhood? >> when our enemies tell us who they are, believe them. there is no mystery. they've openly stated their agenda is to islamize societies. to establish a global islamic caliphate. -- to destroy israel and expand sharia truth the west. it is not like we are trying to read tea leave
. the boehner bill has capped on the spending so that seems to be a big divide. how do you tweak that to make the two of them happy? that might be a tall order. i can't think what would make the tea party satisfied with this bill, but balanced budget amendment? >> right. there has within talk around here unconfirmed that that is the sweetener being added to the boehner bill, a balanced budget amendment. but really this is an extraordinary evening in an extraordinary episode, greta, one that political scientists will be studying for 50 years or more. we watch both divided government at its most dysfunctional. and a president who to many observers appears to be side lined for the time being as -- congressional leaders work behind closed doors to hammer this out and deep divisions whereby a powerful speaker john boehner is having difficulty coralling votes he needed. remember he lost 59 republican votes. you have this large freshman class, 80 members, a lot backed by the tea party and elected here to, on a promise of cutting spending and take one exyampem. tim scott from south carolina was one o
in history in terms of what we do with cut, cap and balance. we had a big disagreement last week over the mcconnell plan. today the president races out to your old podium. there's a new plan, hang on, six guys in a room. it is very frustrating to me that republicans are negotiating against themselves. they ought to be united supporting cut, cap and balance that is the best answer to the structural foundational problem fast we have in the economy. >> you are right in principle. cut, cap and balance does what you want it to do. but, it is not going to be a success. it is not going to go through. >> sean: why tkpwerb shea against yourself? >> i want a viable alternative to a downgrade of america's financial reputation. >> sean: moody's is saying it going to downgrade any way. s&p saying within maybe 90 days. >> cap -- >> cut, cap and balance doesn't go as far as the ryan budget went. the ryan budget was voted on unanimously by the house republicans. i do think that this debate is a good one to have. what i don't see is the 2012 candidates coming forward on the republican side and saying, taking
. they will try and get 60 votes on this. the big question is they need republicans and are they going to get enough republican votes when they slice and dice this thing to send it back to the house where there i assume they are going to get some republicans but mostly democrats? >> we'll have to see what it is. i have to tell you we have to do two things here. avoid default but avoid downgrade. the proposals on the table there haven't been enough spending cuts or as pat mentioned the balanced budget component is so pop to ge impoo get our fiscal house in order. >> and if we don't get ahold of the growth pattern we are going to be in trouble. senators thank you both for being so patient and for your insight. it will be a long weekend and we appreciate you being with us. tonight, karl rove on the breaking news. and frank woman: day care can be expensive. so to save some money, i found one that uses robots instead of real people. 'cuz robots work for free. robot 1:good morning... robot 1:...female child. sfx: modem dial-up noise woman: flaws? yeah, um, maybe. anncr: there's an easier way to sav

to get members to support. the big flaw in that plan he was on radio explaining it today. this select committee. who are the people? when are the cuts coming where are the cuts going to be? that was the flaw. all that aside. he's got another plan. the president has no plan. >> i was stunned they allowed the president to go to the east room by himself and give a partisan speech with no plan in place and calling on members of the public to call the members of congress. i heard today that calls were up but they weren't what the president wanted. it is saying don't cave. surprisingly the poll you just read 38% of the people who still think he's handling this well? that you don't have a plan that you can explain it. and ed henry now with fox news as a white house correspondent pressed today, pressed jay carney on why don't you have a plan? i can imagine how you explain why you don't. >> sean: we'll get into this in the next segment. it angers me now. that republicans are competing only with their own deal. the president gets to throw darts and say no, no, no. where is his leadership stuart
. that is the big question, will casey be set free tomorrow? in this case that isn't a far-fetched idea. many are still trying to wrap their head around how the jury reached a not guilty verdict in 11 hours of deliberation. one alternate juror tried to explain the jury's reasoning even caused a stir when he called casey a good mother. >> they didn't show motive of why, from their own witnesses, this really nice, probably good mother had killed her child. >> her own lawyer call her a liar and slut, how do you get to the good mother part? >> that was from the evidence that the prosecution brought out. the first number of witnesses were casey's friends. every time they said they saw casey with caylee, it was a will having relationship. tpwhaoupb provided any evidence to the contrary. -- no one provided any evidence to the contrary. >> sean: mark geragos is back and kimberly guilfoyle. you can see her on the upcoming new show here on fox, it is call the five. welcome all of you. i'm tired of the jury getting beaten up. second guessing, attacking them. how could they come to this verdict? i was 95
